Take it back and get another copy. The shop will fuss but under the CGA they aren't allowed to.

If its faulty they have to replace it.

BUT if they put it into another PC and show you that it works OK then they don't as it will be your PC causing the problem.

Do you have another computer to try it on before returning to the shop ?

Sometimes cleaning your Optical drive's lens with a cleaning disk can help, and also cleaning the disk that won't read - even if it looks clean a fingerprint or spec of dust in the wrong place can totally muck things up.

Sometimes too a drive just won't read one particular disk, it can be a symptom of a failing laser or just a weird case of a drive not "liking" that disk.

On a side note your spelling is atrocious :P
